I am honored to be raising money for lung cancer research through the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. My father, maternal aunt and mother-in-law died of lung cancer during the time that almost no one lived beyond a year after diagnosis. My brother, Don Stranathan, and several other cancer warrior friends are now battling this disease. The prognosis is much better than it was 20 years ago but lung cancer is still the #1 cancer killer of men and women in the U.S. Unfortunately lung cancer receives the least amount of government funding for research. This may be because of the stigma of lung cancer that it is a smoker’s disease. 17.9 % of people diagnosed with lung cancer are nonsmokers! Unfortunately most cases of lung cancer are diagnosed in late stages. Please help me honor all of the lung cancer warriors that are bravely fighting this disease by raising money for lung cancer research. More research means more survivors and better survivorship!
Please help me support GO2 Foundation For Lung Cancer by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends.
Every dollar I raise will advance their mission to change the reality of living with lung cancer by ending stigma, increasing public and private research funding, and ensuring access to care. Together, we can make a difference!
In honor of all the brave people I know living with lung cancer!
